On the 22 nd of August  a paralympian came to our school and he competed in athletics. He had spina bifida where he couldn’t walk, he was in 3 paralympic games.

It took him 7 times to get the right wheelchair and they were gloves and they punch the wheels to go. The 2 back wheels are pumped up to 200 psi and the small wheel at the front is 150 psi.

I thought that he was really good but he had lots of accidents one of them is he dislocated his shoulder and had to race the next day. When he raced he got a gold and he got lots of medals he was playing basketball when he was young but till he got to the age of 16, at 16 athletics was becoming popular sport so he went to Western Australia to play.
